VIEWS OF A SAMPLE OF KUWAIT UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ON TEACHING STAFF CHARACTERISTICS AND TEACHING METHODS IN THE UNIVERSITY

Auther : Dr. Abdel-Mohsen Hamada

 

        This study aims at identifying the views of a sample of Kuwait University students of the characteristics and traits they prefer in the university staff member, and whether those staff members who tend them have those traits.

         The study also aims at exploring the students’ opinion on teaching methods and the extent to which staff members adhere to such methods.

         The majority of the sample students believe that the university staff member should have the following traits: 

- the ability to communicate his subject clearly to the students;

- clarity, objectivity and fairness;

- to meet with his students and allow them to discuss matters with him;

- to master his subject matter;

- to tolerate opposing views;

- to avoid imposing his own views;

- to understand the psychology of his students;

- to be aware of the general issues of society.

         The majority of the sample student also thinks that only a limited number of the teaching staff who taught them had those traits.

         The following teaching methods are preferred by the majority of the sample students:

 -  a textbook on the subject to be taught;

-   a reference book for individual assignments;

-   discussion of textbooks and references;

-   encouragement of student involvement and analytical notes;

-   forming discussion problems;

-    experimenting and simulation;

-    group discussion.

          The majority of the sample students think that most staff members who taught them did not use many of the methods mentioned above.

          The writer discusses and analyses the results of this study in the light of studies and research available to him in order to establish two criteria by which he would evaluate the phenomenon studied.  In the light of the study’s conclusions, the writer has made certain suggestions and recommendations that he hopes would assist in achieving the aims of the study.
